How Does Device As A Service Can Help Your Company?

Managed services 05/14/2020 - 12:41 by Swami Nathan

The moment IT departments are saddled with tedious tasks, like security audits, tech refreshes and setting up or decommissioning accounts, they can’t participate in making the strategic decisions that will add to their business’s bottom line. This can stifle the innovative potential of an increasingly vital department, which given the way tech advances, no business can afford and this where Device as a Service comes into play.

What is Device as a Service?

Device as a Service (DaaS) is a subscription service providing PCs, smartphones and other mobile computing devices. Device as a Service eases a company’s IT needs by outsourcing the infrastructure, software, and equipment maintenance to outside providers. Subscribing to a Device as a Service provider will allow an organisation to scale up and down physical devices as required, and more regularly and easily upgrade to newer hardware without much strain on the organisation itself.

How Device as a Service Enables IT?

Here are the top five forms in which organisations will benefit from a Device as a Service Subscription Engagement;

1. Budgetary Easiness

Device as a Service can include, at a reasonable monthly rate, hardware, software, and services. Simplifying the cost structure saves both money and the time wasted on budgeting. With Device as a Service, companies which needs to scale up to meet demands or scale down due to budgetary constraints can easily do so.

In today’s rapidly changing tech world, where change occurs almost each day, this form of adaptability can only become more crucial to survival and growth — and having the versatility to adjust on the fly can play an essential part in keeping up with the competition.

2. Downtime Decreases

Accidents do occur. Let’s assume that an employee drops a gadget down a storm drain or drives a vehicle over it. Here’s what happens next: A clock begins to tick as to how long it takes for that employee to get up and running on a new or repaired device. And every hour that passes sucks out of the organisation’s production hours. Companies also plan for this kind of situation by holding lockers full of extra equipment, but this is an inefficient resource use (especially for companies with multiple far-flung branches).

3. Users Inside Will Smile

Employees at the company want the latest and greatest technology — and don’t want to wait. The provision of refreshments and upgrades to the device can be time-consuming and process-intensive, and the longer staff wait the more imperative the need is. A Device as a Service provider should focus on satisfying these internal users by supplying them with the latest devices and innovative technologies to fulfil their needs at a cadence that makes business sense.

4. Strengthening Protection with Device Management

No matter the size of your business, your employees probably rely on multiple devices to do their job. Without the correct device management systems in place, this device fleet can grow rapidly from dozens to hundreds — even thousands for larger organisations.

IT may take significant time trying to keep track of these devices, but it can be extremely difficult and repetitive to ensure that each system adheres to policy and safety standards.

Many vendors to Device as a Service provide security and software services. Having a provider of the Device as a Service solution also ensures that customers work with newer and more secure devices. This liberates IT managers from spending more time designing and implementing more security measures and development solutions to help their companies become more successful.

5. Device as a Service Can Handle Disposal

Determining what to do with older devices is one of the biggest headaches companies faces. Wiping them clean, finding out whether they can be re-used, and redeploying or recycling them takes time off contributing to the core competency of the business—not to mention the safety consequences of any data they still hold.

One of the best and fastest ways of improving overall productivity — and allowing IT to participate more fully in the development of a company’s strategic direction — is to outsource device disposal responsibility and accountability. While vital to the company’s success, Device as a Service vendors can handle this important process with secure and compliant methods.

If your IT team gets bogged down with repetitive activities, day in and day out, it might be time you looked at a new approach to free them up and make full use of their talents.

Combining protected devices with a controlled plan like Device as a Service that accounts for every device on your network would streamline your protection offering and make it more robust to external threats.
